went after medical fraud in medicare and medicaid very aggressively, more aggressively than ever before. and we have saved 10's of billions of dollars. 50 million in waste taken out of the program. i have worked with the federal government to cut a trillion dollars out of our domestic discretionary budget. that's the largest cut in the budget since dwight eisen hour. . . when governor romney stood on a stage with other republican candidates for the nomination and he was asked, would you take $10 of spending cuts for just $1 of revenue? and he said no. now, if you take such an unbalanced approach, then that means you are going to be gutting our investments in schools and education. it means that governor romney talked about medicaid and how we could send it back to the states, but effectively this means a 30% cut in the primary program we help for seniors who are in nursing homes, for kids who are with disabilities. >> mr. president, i'm sorry. >> that is not right strategy for us to move forward. >> governor, what about simpson- bowles? do you support simpson-bowles? >> simpson-bowles,
. if you look at the issues that really matter, taming the explosive growth of medicare, the explosive growth of medicaid, saving social security, cutting national defense. we spend more than the next 17 countries combined. our defense spending is unsustainable. tax reform. we're not hearing that from either side. so when i hear barack obama saying mitt romney's a right-wing radical and mitt romney's saying barack obama is a european socialist, it's a joke because al, there's not, unfortunately, a lot of serious talk about -- and you talk to simpson-bowles about the key issues that are going to bankrupt us, not in the next generation, but over the next decade. >> you're right, joe. and the architecture's out there. we know what we have to do. >> right. >> both sides know what we have to do. both sides have to compromise some. particularly social security's not that hard at all. >> no. >> but no one's talking about it. this is a strange campaign. in some ways people talk about what they want to do 10 or 15 years from now. no one's talking about what we're going to do in the next couple

the issue of medicare is factoring into the presidential race in three key states. i think these polls do more than anything to prove how this has been a substance free campaign on both sides. it's been a campaign according to mika brzenzski that has been a sign campaign. medicare is considered extremely important for 50% of those polled and that makes a lot of sense. voters in those three states were also asked the question, what the medicare system would look like in the future. roughly 6 in 10 said the program should maintain the current system of benefits and that number peaked at 65%. one of the most stunning numbers to me, and it is unbelievably depressing, in this age of, you know, where simpson and bowles are running around the country trying to tell americans desperately what needs to be done to save this country from falling off a cliff financially, over 70% of voters in florida said, seniors in florida said that you don't have to cut medicare to take care of the debt. why do you even say that? >> please, cut my benefits. no one is going to say that, joe. you know that. >> how a

. as you know, chris, carter was right, he had opposed medicare at the start but when reagan said, there you go again, it actually sort of discounted everything else that carter had said in that debate. so they've got to be organic, they've got to be natural, they've got to be real. i think everybody at least in the political class who has seen this report is going to be watching the debate to see if we can sort of tick off, oh, that was the prepared zinger. did he bring it off? >> oh, yeah. >> the other thing is he's not very good at this. i mean, you know, i know they don't want him to be spontaneous because he'll say the wrong thing, but delivered a prepared funny line seems to me to be one of the hardest tasks probably even harder than telling us what's in his tax plan. >> as a journalist, joan, i want your view. suppose you're watching the debate as we all will be, everybody is going to be watching wednesday night, and you see what is obviously is prefab zinger that doesn't even sound like romney. it's more of a wisecrack which he's not particularly good at, something i would
are raising taxes and cutting medicare. in fact, there has been a study released this week. the people look at his spending plans and all of the debt they create and interest that its charge. he will raise taxes on the middle class as well by some $4,000 per family. the american people do not want more taxes. they want less spending and more growth. we will do that and get america back on a balanced budget. [applause] i do not want to raise taxes on any one. this president seems to think that keeping our taxes the same as they are now is a huge tax cut. only in washington would do thing keeping taxes as they are is a huge tax cut. hot i will find a way to bring our taxes down -- i will find a way to bring down our taxes. we will give the middle class a tax break.

about, you talked about paul ryan, this medicare argument, you know, do you think that seniors believe that this is only going to affect people under the age of 55 or do they not trust politicians enough to think they can't keep their hands off the medicare. >> i honestly don't know how to get my arms around how the seniors react. they understand that paul ryan is up to no good when it comes to his medicare proposal. they look at him you look at the response at aarp, the way the proposal is at the end of the day has been received negatively by all folks even people who say we need to do something with the medicare, don't think it works. >> thank you, eliot spitzer who you can see on viewpoint at 8:00 p.m. you can watch him tonight covering all the issues for the debate. thank you. >> thanks for having me on. >> you can call 866-55-press. we're taking more of your calls. i'm jamaal simmons. thank you for putting up with me this morning. >> radio meets television, the bill press show, now on current tv. ♪ perspective. >>i'm a slutty bob hope. the troops love me. >>only on current tv. y
